It's not the most moisturizing formula I've tried, but it's definitely one of the more hydrating matte (or nearly matte) lipstick formulas. I've had the best luck with the darker shades in this range, while lighter ones tend to be a little less forgiving.

my thoughts on the formula:
Pure Matte lipsticks have a matte finish, and while they're not moisturizing, they don't rob my lips of moisture. Mattes do, however, last longer on lips, and NARS' Pure Matte lipsticks last between four and five hours on me,...
" This is an orange-red coral with a natural sheen that reads mostly matte from afar. Guerlain Habit Rouge is redder. Guerlain Sheer is a bit glossier, a touch lighter. NARS Joyous is a browner, more muted version. Moscow has incredible pigmentation with opaque color in a single pass.
Pure Mattes are mostly matte without being drying or uncomfortable to wear and deliver excellent color coverage with little product. It could be a touch more moisturizing over the time it wears, but for a matte, achieving "not drying" status is good.

Lately the amplified finish lipsticks have been quite forgivable and not nearly as dry or as matte as ones I've tried in the past. This has a balmy texture with a slight tackiness and a smooth, creamy consistency that looks almost glossy on lips.
